Week ThirtyFive: Going Back in time to 1959...Cuba 2015 Before the American's arrive.

As we board an  Ilyushin Il-96-300s with Cubana de Aviación (Cuban Airlines) this is the 1st step back in time…

It has a two class configuration…this is a big wide body four engine long haul aeroplane…The 1st class seats are UNreal like big lounge chairs so comfortable I went to sleep as soon as that big baby left the ground feeling totally safe and secure. 915 more words


Cuba - June 2015 (preceded by 1 night/day in Cayman Island)

We headed off to Heathrow on the Monday morning for our much-anticipated travels in rather a fragile state.  No, not hungover, but “fresh” from about 6 hours in A&E and various head and body scans (all clear for both of us) following a scary crash on the A1 outside London in which I bumped my head rather hard and my poor car was written off, after rolling onto its roof.   1,169 more words

Buena Vista Social Club: Lost And Found

I reviewed Buena Vista Social Club over at one of the old places, and loved it, giving it 4.5 . This album consists of a hodgepodge of tracks that were left in the vaults from that recording as well as some live tracks performed and recorded in the years since its predecessor’s release and worldwide success. 325 more words
